This is a really nice restaurant in downtown Portland. Ambience is nice and a good selection of wine and cocktails. We had wonderful grilled squid which was nicely spiced and delicate and pork satay with peanut sauce. Both dishes were well presented. We shared a shrimp pad thai which was really delicious. We would definitely come back. Can recommend highly.

Loved everything, the drinks, the vibe, and the food. Chicken wings are fantastic and the meals are all really big. Staff was friendly and worked with our group (we were quit annoying as we had more people join later on). Will deff be back to try more of the grilled skewers!

Our favorite restaurant when we are in the mood for Asian. The infusion of flavor so such as lemongrass, ginger, coconut are over the top with flavor!

Full dinner for 4 this night. Prices were very reasonable, dinners maxed out at $20. Tight seating so the place is a bit noisy. Had to wait 20 minutes at 6pm on Saturday night in April. One person had the duck which had a relatively mild game flavor and he said it could have used a bit more sauce though he very much enjoyed. My beef was savory with some flavors I could not identify but they were a wonderful combination. Kra pow chicken was the hottest dish at the table and she ordered a 2 on heat scale, the point is, a lot of the food is not spicy hot. Our last diner had vegetarian curry and we all enjoyed the curry flavor. My wife and I eat a lot of curries and this was a pleasant blend to make a very enjoyable dish. Had seasoned peanuts and crispy quail for appetizer, both quite pleasing. Has a full bar and 6-8 craft beer choices.

Superb, savory and inventive Thai food. You know how Thai food can sometimes seem be the same at every other Thai restaurant? Well, not at this fine eatery. They take this genre and bring a taste palette that is fresh and bold, yet subtle and complex. This was my second visit. The atmosphere is fun and comfortable. The waitstaff is professional and knowledgeable. Cocktails take a creative twist on classic favorites. I will be back again next time I'm in the "little big city".
